Blackrock's (BLK) Mission Statement
BlackRock's mission is to be a world-class provider of asset management and risk management services. We offer a broad range of investment products that target returns in excess of their benchmarks while efficiently managing risk. Our risk management products and services are developed from the same proprietary systems and analytics that support our own asset management business. We bring to asset management a practical, real world application of risk management techniques and analytics designed to maximize usability, consistency, efficiency, and flexibility.
BlackRock is committed to building long-term relationships by providing superior performance, excellent client service, and customized products and services to meet individual client needs. We continually and carefully evaluate new products and disciplines based upon market opportunities, investor needs, and their strategic fit with BlackRock's existing organization.
At BlackRock, we believe that experienced investment professionals using a disciplined investment process and sophisticated analytical tools will consistently add value to client portfolios. Accordingly, BlackRock has assembled a team of professionals with expertise throughout the global capital markets and, over the years, has continued to make significant investments in technology and analytics. By continually updating our systems, we are able to better quantify and evaluate the risk of each investment decision. We believe that our risk management process is unique in the investment management community, and we know of no other firm with such comprehensive capabilities in terms of technology and professional resources.
As of June 30, 2005, BlackRock employs over 1,400 professionals whose disciplines include portfolio management, risk management, business development and client service, technology, operations and administration. Given BlackRock's focus on risk management to achieve performance goals, BlackRock Solutions is dedicated to developing and continually enhancing proprietarily-developed analytical tools.
BlackRock maintains a senior-level commitment to service that fosters dynamic client relationships and enables us to assist clients with all aspects of their investment needs. By understanding these needs, we can proactively develop suitable strategies to address them. As a result, over 225 BlackRock clients have entrusted the firm with multiple assignments across and within asset classes.
Our communication and reporting capabilities reflect an extension of our commitment to client service. All clients receive a variety of BlackRock publications, including quarterly updates and Special Reports. We also provide over 400 clients with password-protected access to portfolio reports and analytics via BlackRock's website, www.blackrock.com. Today, many clients choose to receive their monthly or quarterly client reports via the Internet.
